  1. Word 2016 fails to print margins correctly / messes up layout (Possible OpenType .otf Font bug)

    I am having severe problems with Word 2016, as it does not print the document layout correctly as it somehow messes up the margin when printing.
    NOTE: This happens when printing to Adobe Acrobat DC and my physical printer!
    My document layout:
    • no markup,
    • custom margins (set to 1,27cm top / bottom and left / right - my printer can easily handle these...)
    • no header or footer
    • paper size set to A4 in all settings

    • restore the right-click Autocorrect menu to Word 2016

      In Word 2007 and 2010, if you misspelled a word, you could right click, and there, in the right-click menu, was an option for "Auto-Correct" with a fly-out menu to the right, with suggested words, and at the bottom "Autocorrect options." This menu allowed me to speed up my typing by adding corrections to the Autocorrect dictionary on the fly, letting Word learn my typing style and common mistakes.

      Now, this is hidden in File, Options, Autocorrect, behind a series of obscure menus that take time, and hinder my workflow. If I'm on a typing roll, and inspiration hits, the…

        We want to let you know that the Word team has heard your feedback, and they’re planning to restore right-click access to AutoCorrect options in Word 2016. If you’re an Office 365 subscriber, you should see this change in a future update.

        As always, thanks for your feedback. We appreciate it!

      • Word 2016 and Windows 10 Azure AD login

        Word 2016 (Office 2016) does not use Windows 10 login credentials, if I login to Windows 10 using my Office 365 / Azure AD account. I have to sign-in to Office again using the same account.

            We value users’ feedback, and are pleased to announce that we’re planning to enable the style options in Grammar checking for Office 2016 users this winter – stay tuned for updates on availability. The Editor feature, which includes new style options and other ongoing enhancements to the experience, will continue to be exclusively offered through an Office 365 subscription.
